By Kscope on March 12, 2010 in Awards, Nosound, Review

For the second year in a row Nosound have won the Best Recording award at the Italian Prog awards. A Sense of Loss beat off competition from Osi, Muse, Mars Volta and Porcupine Tree to scoop the prestigious award. Full details of the award can be found HERE.

The album was also reviewed in a recent issue of Classic Rock Prog who described it as ‘a powerfully distinctive record.’ They went on to state:

“Founder member and leader Giancarlo Erra has moved his band purposefully forward from their 2008 album Lightdark, tightening up his songwriting and reining in some of his more wilful atmospheric excesses in the process. The steady well of keyboards and acoustic guitars, the gentle skitterof Gigi Zito’s brilliantly under-the-radar percussion and the soothing sweep of well-placed strings that Erra fuses together into a lush and alluring whole amounts to a unique and shrewdly layered sonic world and a glorious  advert for lightness of touch in the pursuit of impact that counts and endures. Despite their penchant for subdued tempos, sober reflection and humble collective restraint, Nosound pack a rela punch, so that even on the fragile lament of My Apology, the expression of their loss is indubitably our substantial gain.”

The 2 disc edition of the album which includes a DVD containing 5.1 surround and 24bit mixes of the album, video footage, picture gallery and more is available from the Kscope store.
